Pig stories

Just for John Gill -  Pig attack stories

Pig hunting in outback Australia:

Got this email from Outback Fly's owner...She is round 16mths old. She is the black one in a previous picture in the rapids...

"G'day Mick, Went out for a hunt with a mate on that block at Marrakai yesterday morning. We did the same walk as me and you did that time but the other way around, just on day break. Fly seemed to click and really came into her own. She ran away down the fenceline and found and bailed a 85kg boar by herself till the other dogs got there for backup. 10 min later she ran away with Tilly (the blue healer) in tow. They found and bailed a 100kg boar for about 5min till I got there and put an end to things. I think she has now well and truly taken over as my main dog. I could'nt be happier with her drive, she has hardened right up on the bail and is using her nose like a pro. We will have to sort out a hunt soon so you can see for yourself. Cheers Jamie"

Narh! 100kg, he's a baby!

I wouldn't want to meet mom and dad then!

Will there be a cookout or are they too tough to eat?

JohnD said...

Dog food - tough and full of parasites!

Ugh. Too bad, but at least it won't go to waste.
